LISS: Lithuanian International Student Services
In 2008, LAC founded Lithuanian International Student Services (LISS) designed to offer American and Canadian college students of Lithuanian heritage an international experience and a unique immersion in the language and culture of the country of their heritage.
During six summer weeks in Lithuania, college students receive invaluable work experience in the area of their college major and can receive up to five college credits from Vytautas Magnus University (VMU) in Kaunas. VMU also provides valuable educational and professional programs that LISS summer interns will be able to list on their résumés. In 2017 similar agreement was signed with Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VGTU).
A few years ago LISS began to offer four-week summer language and culture immersion internships in Lithuania to American and Canadian high school students of Lithuanian heritage.
